Madonna's Daughter Lourdes Leon Is the New Face of Marc Jacobs
Lourdes "Lola" Leon rocks red hair in the ads for the new Marc Jacobs spring collection.
On Instagram, she shared a video of herself dancing in a campaign for the new Adidas by Stella McCartney collection. She was also featured in Miu Miu's spring 2019 ad campaign.
Meet the Parents
Lourdes is the daughter of Cuban actor Carlos Leon. The former personal trainer met Madonna while running in New York's Central Park in 1994; they were together for three years. He is now married to Danish model and designer Betina Holte.
She seems to have a passion for the arts like her parents. Here's Lourdes performing at the Desigual X Carlota Guerrero Show during Art Basel in Miami Beach.
She studied at the University of Michigan, Madonna's alma mater. In 2010, she became the creative director for her mom's junior fashion line Material Girl, sold at Macy's.
Strike a Pose
She grew up in front of the cameras with her iconic mom. Here they are at a Harry Potter movie premiere in London in 2005.
Although she's been famous since she was born, Lourdes seems to value her privacy. She stayed away from social media until early this year. She also seems to maintain a good relationship with her dad, attending his wedding in 2013 and remaining close to him throughout the years.
Fashion's It Girl

Madonna talked to Vogue U.K. about her daughter. "I'm green with envy because she's incredible at everything she does — she's an incredible dancer, she's a great actress, she plays the piano beautifully, she's way better than me in the talent department," she said in 2019. "I feel social media plagues her and makes her feel like, 'People are going to give me things because I'm her daughter.' I try to give her examples of other children of celebrities like Zoë Kravitz, for instance, who have to work through that 'Oh yeah, you're the daughter of...' — and then eventually you are taken seriously for what you do."
Lourdes María Ciccone Leon is her full name, but maybe she'll soon be known as just "Lola." Using a mononym worked for Madonna, and Lourdes seems to be on her way to that kind of stardom.
